Hi Matt,  sorry I couldn't find a Peter anywhere in the document not just in Wrightington. There was a Roger, Henry, Thomas, and one Jos who was 'reputed to be a priest' in Lancaster.

Hi Iggy, I've been away and am a bit lost as to whom I've replied. Thank's for your information about the cemetry at Ince. This is my Nicholas I'm sure  and I believe quite a lot of his family are also buried there. I must try to get there to see the graves but I live in Leeds so it's a bit difficult.

Hi Luzzu, about 40 years ago someone wrote to my father saying they had traced the family back to 1350ish in a small village near Preston or Chorley. Unfortunately my father thought it was a confidence trick and did nothing.
 I'm stuck at 1870 but still searching. All the Blackledge's in my family are from Wigan. Thanks for the web address.

Hi Dotty, thank you for your kind offer. The guy I'm looking for was called James Blakeledge/Blackledge. All I know is that he married Betty Rothwell at Upholland and in St.John's RC church in Wigan in1794. I know that there were other relatives about in Wigan, Christopher, Mary, William Blakeledge and possible Alice Blackledge b.1740.
I have no idea where James was born and I've not known where to look.  James son, Thomas, had two children born in Brindle,  (Nicholas in 1828 and William 1831) while other children born before and after these dates were born in Wigan.
